VIC Mornington Peninsular Square Dancers
PAC WEEKEND, DROMANA
First Peninsular Advanced & Challenge Weekend
An extremely special opportunity to enjoy a FULL weekend of A2 (and C1) with Paul Bristow our feature caller.
We have always wanted to provide the A dancers with something special and this is what we've come up with.
A2 sessions Friday Night, Saturday Morning & Afternoon, Saturday Night and Sunday Afternoon.
C1 sessions Saturday Afternoon and Sunday Morning.
As Advanced dancers are of limited number in Australia this sort of weekend really does rely on dancer support. We hope to make this an annual event if the dancer interest is there.
So far we have been encouraged by good registration numbers.
